In dramatic fashion, the Beast won the 12U championship of the North Shore Girls Softball League’s recreational season. The Beast held the Ninjas in the last inning for a thrilling 7-6 win.

In the bottom of the 7th inning, the Ninjas loaded the bases with one out and trailing 7-6. Beast pitcher Courtney Kim was on the mound and got the last two batters out to finish the game. Earlier, the Ninjas made a heroic comeback effort battling from a 0-5 deficit to tie the game 5-5, and then again at 6-6 before falling short in their last at bat.

Abby Ausmus drove in the winning run for the Beast in the top of the 7th inning. Ausmus, along with Kim and Morgan Reed, held off the Ninjas with outstanding pitching.

“It was an exciting way to finish the rec season,” said Beast manager Brad Ausmus. “The girls on both teams made many great plays throughout the game and never gave up in pursuit of the championship.”

North Shore is in its 23rd year of operation and is proud to have produced some of the finest players to play at local San Diego high schools, including the Torrey Pines and Canyon Crest softball programs.
